The more I photograph in downtown Long Beach I continue to find great locations for portraits. John & Meredith were looking for something different with an urban look and feel. As you walk around and peek around a corner or alley way, you find so much character in the building structures. The textured walls were perfect for John & Meredith's engagement session. I loved that they brought props and different outfits to mix it up. When a couple goes beyond just showing up for a portrait session, it lends itself to a unique, fun and special moment in time.
